Sydney’s own post punk powerhouse JOHNNY HUNTER is bringing their signature live show across the east coast. Off the back of millennial anthems ‘1995’ and ‘Cult Classic’, the 5 piece are performing their latest release ‘Ashamed’, a self-loathing & all-indicting confession of the band’s own brand of hometown dysphoria.
“ASHAMED” is the latest single from live spectacle JOHNNY HUNTER that sets a new pace for their established post punk stylings. Ashamed was produced by Dylan Adams (West Thebarton, DMA’s, SKEGGS). After a fantastically received double A-side release through Break Even Recordings in 2018 which saw ‘1995’ receive instant rotation adds to FBI radio, Triple J Unearthed and Rage, The five piece have delivered again with this 2:20 knockout single. An introspective attack on the budget-grade hedonism that is known all too well amongst the punters of a dying Sydney nightlife, Ashamed is the band’s admission of guilt, as well as a barking indictment of all those around them; a top-down testimony of Sydney’s slow decay.
This city that once seemed to inspire the creative endeavours of so many, is now better known for testing artist’s mettle with political curveballs and erratic legislation that rarely makes sense to anyone affected. Disgruntled but with no sense of innocence, Johnny Hunter know that they should be Ashamed.
